Jewelry of Semi-Precious Stones: Stylish Things of Beauty

Want to make or wear impressive costume jewelry, but running on a tight
budget? Using semi-precious stones is one good way to achieve this. These
stones come in a wide variety and are highly accessible to almost everyone.

Semi-precious stones preserve the effect of sophistication. Many pieces of
jewelry made of these stones are pleasant to look at without seeming opulent
Depending on one's own taste and fashion sense, these gemstones have the
greatest potential to enhance one's personal sense of style.

Some semi-precious stones are also birthstones, which correspond to people's
birth months. Some people believe that wearing stones that correspond with
one's birth month increases one's inner strength. This special trait makes
jewelry made of certain semi-precious birthstones especially useful as gifts
Examples of such birthstones are garnet (January) and aquamarine (March).

Another popular belief is that certain stones have their own unique "powers.
For example, wearing garnet is said to help ease the pain of a bad breakup,
or cause jealousy between lovers. Amethyst is said to protect its wearer
against the ill effects of alcohol, slow down intoxication and prevent
hangovers. Turquoise is said to give emotional strength. Jade has always had
enormous importance in Asian civilization; it is said to have the mystical
power to protect its wearer against nightmares and other psychicattacks.

Quartz is said to be among the most important of the semi-precious stones,
because it calls upon the power of love -- especially the rare rose quartz.
Wearing rose quartz is said to increase one's chances of finding or
maintaining a good romantic relationship.

Some pieces of bead jewelry are also made of semi-precious stones. The
stones are threaded together with cords, making fine webs and accentuating
intricate designs. Jewelry made of semi-precious stones is always popular,
partly because of the beliefs associated with the stones -- but mostly
because they're so pretty and can go well with anything one wears.
